Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: got 730+ GD shows , CDR trade anybody?

I've used Recordpad to upload and slice cassette tracks, it's primitive but quick, and the record levels can be punched up a bit.

I imagine there's some primal Dead ('66-'70) out there that hasn't emerged or been converted yet.

I saw a schoolmate recording GD shows with a Panasonic mono deck with built-in condensor mike, on less crowded nights (Thursday, Sunday) at the Fillmore West (Carousel Ballroom) in 1970.

Sounds low-fi, but he actually got pretty good results.

And some of those shows aren't in circulation anywhere, or are seriously incomplete.

Don't know what became of the dude, maybe I could get his name from a 1969 or 1970 Lowell HS yearbook and go from there.

The mind reels...
think of the unknown archives that really would be worth the trouble to switch and slice...

I can trade vols. of mid-sixties artists whose output was limited to a 45 7" single or 2, requiring at some distant date compilations of an archival nature to keep from being heard only by extreme researchers into the "lost" psychedelic and pop teasers (circa 1965 - 1976) which while often as not are fairly predictable, do include the occasional gem where the moment was caught on tape "live" in the studio, never to be recreated again in subsequent settings...
most of the artists in question were not well seasoned or insistant enough to be able to play anything other than standard rock and roll fare in concert (Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Little Richard... which at least got the kids dancing and well, that's show biz.)

BTW, I finally got my burner replaced and working pretty good with Nero 7 (already outdated since Nero 8 and 9 added more options and improvements, but for me the essential 7 is more than enough).
I can't recall the familiar handle of the generous GD forum person, that I'll finally be sending some of the obscure non-GD late '60s early '70s psych I've archived - as promised, to Design & Vision in Northboro, MA -

in gratitude for having sent me some Feb-March 1969 Fillmore West CDRs last year.

If your cups are full, may they be again my friends.
